The setting in the great room is beautiful with a stone gas fireplace, 40" flat screen, blu-ray player, seating for 6-8, vaulted ceiling with fan and hickory hardwood flooring throughout! The bathroom is a stunning throwback style with black and white tiles, Martha Stewart Designed vanity & large bathtub with cool subway tiling.

Sauk Lake is a very nice lake for all recreational activities such as jet skiing, water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, along with fishing for multiple varieties of fish including crappies, sunnies, perch, walleye, northern & bass. Winter fishing is also very popular on the lake, bring your fish house!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My name is Brian Johnson, I grew up in Grand Forks, ND and currently reside in Sauk Centre, MN & Eden Prairie, MN. I am an entrepreneur/business owner that enjoys the water, playing golf, traveling to various VRBO properties & best of all enjoying family time with my 3 children. i like the finer things in life, and want to treat others that way while renting our beautiful cottage. We picked out finishes and furnishings for this property with this in mind, not just thinking of it as a rental and buying cheap stuff - but adding quality products so it can be a place friends, family and vacationers can appreciate and enjoy calling home for their week or so off of real world hustle.

Why the Owner Chose Sauk Centre, MN, USA:
I have family that own property on Sauk Lake and have been vacationing here with them since 2003. So when I decided to take the plunge and purchase a lake home - Sauk Lake and Sauk Center was first on the mind. The property is truly incredible. A terrific golf course on one side, beautiful lake & views in the back with 3 buildings on an acre was a dream to find. The property includes a main home, a bunk house and the cottage. I'll be your neighbor during your stay - so I can assist with anything you may need. Within the first year it was realized that the former cottage had to either be remodeled or taken down to rebuild. With the help of a wonderful local builder we designed and built a stunning little cottage with all the character and more than the original built in 1927. I spent the first 1/2 of 2012 building out the interior myself. I loved every minute of it, and hope you love what you see as well and make return trips!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage is very close to the water in a quiet peaceful location. It was built with an old time cottage feel in mind - and we think we did a pretty good job hitting that goal. Sitting in the dinette or out on the deck in the morning with your favorite cup of coffee looking out over the peaceful calm morning lake is incredible! The home was built with sound deadening in the walls between the bedrooms and bathroom so it is very quite for those mornings you want to sleep in! It is not a huge cottage, but it is very functional and has everything you need to create wonderful family memories.
